As we may have told you, much of the Odd Couple will make you fall asleep. Some won’t, though, and “Going On” is definitely one of Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse’s best post-St. Elsewhere jams. Fittingly then, the Wendy Morgan-directed video for the track is a booty shaking dance-a-thon, but not like “Run“‘s Timberlake-hosted TV dance party. This one’s set in Jamaica with cooler hats, smoother moves, and more dust. Plus, it stars a real-life Magritte door and some kinda love story.
You’re so surreal, Gnarls. But seriously, this video and song kick ass. If you haven’t, make sure to check out our terrible spread of iPhone pics from Gnarls’s set at Highline. (They smilingly called it an “overpaid dress rehearsal,” so we replied in kind with totally unprofessional photographic equipment. One turn begets the other, guys.)
The Odd Couple is out via Atlantic.
